Copies of our petition, signed by over 5000 objectors, and the online petition with 300 more names have now been handed in to Northumberland and North Tyneside Councils. These have been acknowledged and will be reported to the planning committee members.

Why should our area be the dustbin for all Tyneside’s waste?

Don’t they think we have suffered the SMELLS, TRAFFIC, LITTER, NOISE, VERMIN, FLIES for long enough?

Tell them . . . .

You have no right to inflict this on our families and future generations.

40 years is more than enough: & this proposal could mean another 40.

Say NO to landfill. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

No To Landfill Campaign

July 3, 2008 by


If you live in Earsdon, Backworth, Holywell, Seaton Delaval,
Killingworth and Seghill, this affects you.

After 3 years of campaigning it looks like we may have
a date for the Planning Committee meeting to consider SITA’s
planning application to extend their landfill operation in your area.
The date is Tuesday 29th July at County Hall, Morpeth.

A special site inspection is to be carried out for the benefit of all
the councillors on Northumberland and North Tyneside
Councils planning committees. This is to take place on
Monday 7th July at the site’s main gates in Seghill at 9.45am.

If you would like to take this opportunity to express your opposition to SITA’s proposals personally to
the people who will be making the decision we would like
to see you at the Seghill main gates
from 9.20am on 7th July to greet the councillors when
they arrive. 40 years of landfill on our doorstep is enough,
and this proposal could mean another 40 years.
We cannot let this be inflicted on our families
and future generations.

Bad News for Spotlight Magazine

February 28, 2008 by

I recieved an email from Mandy Clarke, editor of Spotlight, she would like me to make you all aware that Spotlight is no longer going to be made, As She says in the Email “Whilst I have been supporting it with my own money I cannot justify continuing, especially when the monthly battle to find new advertisers seems to be becoming harder rather than easier! I have taken great pleasure in putting it together every month, and have met some wonderful people through doing so. I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved, advertised or contributed in whatever form. Without your support it would never have got off the ground at all!”. She would also to make all advertisers aware  that they will recieve any money back that they have paid upfront “If you are one of the advertisers who have paid in advance, I will endeavour to get a cheque refund to you in the next couple of weeks.”
